He orders his toadies.

Meanwhile, the second baby does not fall into the sea after all...it
lands safely on Yoshi’s back! And right after him drops a map!!

different Yoshies. These Yoshies are naturally laid back and relaxed,
but this is a calamity and everyone is in a state of panic. As the
Yoshies frantically yell over each other, the baby insistently points
